Oh, no, no, no!

Mr. Spratt doesn't answer?

Well, never mind, operator.

But Mr. Spratt

will receive our consolation prize...

... of five crisp, new $ 1 bills.

Five dollars? Five dollars.

You'll never know what I went through

to get all those phones.

Night after night in those phone booths.

I paid $30 for that radio,

a fortune in box tops.

Wore out two pair of pants

just sitting.

I lose half of my customers,

and what happens?

They call me and I can't even get in,

all on account of a little key.

A little key no bigger than...

Oh, no, no, no.

Oh, no, no, no.

Hey, mister.

- Where will I find the polo players?

- Oh, they are out on the polo field, I think.

Well, how do I get to the tack room?

Well, you go down this road

until you come to... No, no, no.

- Oh, here we go again. Never mind.

Great country, South America.

You know, I've always wanted to meet

one of those black-eyed senoritas.

The senoritas right here

look muy bonitas to me.

Yeah, well,

they may look that way to you...

...but whenever I meet them,

they're always facedown on a table.

They only come to me to get them

in shape for some other guy.

- Can you keep a secret?

- Sure.

Well, I wouldn't like this noised around,

but I've never had a girl.

- No.

- See, my mother was very strict.

- Didn't have my first date till I was 24.

- Your mother wouldn't let you go out...
